JACKSON, Wyo. — First responders from Jackson Hole Fire/EMS (JHFEMS) will take part in Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) training this week, announced the county today.

During this time the public is asked to refrain from calling 911 if they see what appears to be a multi-vehicle accident or first responders in the area of the Southpark Boat Ramp. 

The standard training exercise will occur Wednesday, June 15, 2022 from approximately 5 p.m. to 9  p.m. at 7255 S Highway 89. First responders may be visible from the highway at the construction staging  area for the simulation of a multi-vehicle accident involving a bus.  

“The realistic training will help responders prepare for this type of accident, as well as other types of Mass Casualty Incidents,” said Battalion Chief Brian Coe. “While this is a simulated training exercise,  we’re asking the public to be cautious around emergency vehicles that will be accessing the highway.”  

“Training Ahead” signs will be placed along the highway to warn motorists that they are approaching the training site. The highlighted portion on the map below depicts the location of Wednesday’s training.
